Kyykka is a centuries old outdoor game from Finland that can be played in teams or individually. The object of the game is to obtain points by throwing a large wooden bat to knock your opponents' skittles out of the playing area in as few throws as possible.

Also known as Finnish skittles or Karelian skittles, kyykka is a centuries old game of Karelian origin that is popular in summer fairs and festivals all over Finland. It is played competitively with national and regional tournaments for teams and invidivual mens and womens categories. During the winter, indoor Kyykka competitions are also organised. International tournaments are staged with the primary competing countries Sweden, Russia, Estonia, Belarus and Germany.
